"The Vallas Turnaround System is positioned to be the nation's leading resource for comprehensive and affordable school reform that offers superior educational resources at the state, district, or school level," says Vernon Johnson, Ed.D., former superintendent and president of Cambium Learning's intervention division Voyager Learning.  "No matter how small or large, any district will now have access to proven, results-driven school reform and improvement thanks to our partnership to bring the Vallas vision to school administrators."

The Vallas Group's turnaround model offers a comprehensive, thoughtful approach to reach substantive school improvement by addressing three critical, highly integrated and interdependent areas:  academics, finance and operations. By focusing expertise in five core areas - Financial Health and Stability; Student-Focused Administration and Operation; Superior Instructional Improvement Models; World Class Human Resources; and Building Local Capacity, the Vallas Turnaround System imparts change while effectively working with educators, labor, parents and communities.

"The Vallas Group selected Cambium Learning Group for this groundbreaking partnership because we identify with its mission to enable educators to unlock every child's potential through learning, no matter where their journey begins," said Paul Vallas. "Through Cambium we have the platform to more widely offer the Vallas Turnaround System to bring about lasting school improvement that is both approachable and accessible by districts or schools that might not otherwise have the resources - either financial or in terms of human expertise - to create dramatic improvements. The Vallas Group is committed to affordable change, so that cost is no longer the deciding factor for schools when it comes to impacting student achievement through the system. This partnership makes this vision possible for schools, districts and states across the nation."  

Cambium Learning Group will hold a press conference today at 11:00 a.m. Central Time at its corporate offices located at 17855 Dallas Parkway, Suite 400, Dallas, Texas. All media are invited to attend. For additional information about The Vallas Turnaround System, visit
